We met briefly after one of the session at the Data Collections conference and
talked about having data specialists on the allotment sheet. The GSIS board
has talked about this for years and has tried to get involvement from other
areas such as the Georgia Department of Education and the PSC.
Noralee Deason from Effingham County has developed a data specialist
certification model for a college course that she is taking and has shared this
with Bob Swiggum, Levette Williams, and the GSIS Advocacy Committee. She is
also seeking PSC involvement. Her model is amazing! Just reviewing her
document shows the tremendous need for data specialists in every school. We
have her permission to share with anyone who can help with this initiative.
Please review and contact Noralee, any member of the GSIS Board, and/or me if
you have any ideas and suggestions in implementing a 'data specialist' program
in all Georgia schools along with a certification program. We appreciate your
willingness to pursue this with the Education Reform Committee.
